Brief notes about South Luangwa National Park

For most visitors, South Luangwa National Park is by far the most practical park to visit in the valley. This is Zambia’s premier wildlife park, with superb wildlife and many excellent camps. This is where the now famous walking safaris started from over 60 years ago and this unique African destination retains some of the finest world-class safari guides.

There are many contenders for the title of Africa's best game park. The Serengeti, Amboseli, Ngorongoro Crater, Etosha, Kruger, Moremi and Mana Pools would certainly be high on the list. South Luangwa has a better claim than most. Some of these other areas will match its phenomenally high game densities. Many others – the lesser known of Africa's parks – will have equally few visitors. One or two also allow night drives, which open up a different, nocturnal world to view, allowing leopards to be commonly seen and even watched whilst hunting.

However, few have South Luangwa's high quality of guiding together with its remarkable wildlife spectacles, day and night, in the isolation of a true wilderness. These elements, perhaps, are how the contenders ought to be judged, and on these the South Luangwa Park comes out around the top of the list.

Wildlife Safari Camp, Central South Luangwa National Park

Wildlife Camp is a safari-camp on the banks of the Luangwa River in Zambia. This camp provides guests with an affordable front-row seat to one of the greatest wildlife sanctuaries in Africa, South Luangwa National Park. Since 1992 Wildlife Camp has been one of the most famous and popular camps in the Luangwa Valley, providing our guests with spectacular and authentic experiences in the African bush.

Wildlife Camp has 9 en-suite chalets, five of which are situated in a quiet corner of the camp, overlooking a lagoon area and surrounded by huge shady trees while the other four are located in the centre of our camp, conveniently close to our reception area, main bar and restaurant. These four chalets each offer unique views over the Luangwa River. The Camp also has En-suite Safari Tents which are ideal for budget guests who cannot afford the slightly higher rates for the Chalets.

Activities at Wildlife Camp will be:-

  • Morning Game Drives with professional local guides
  • Night Game drives with professional local guides
  • Walking Safaris with professional local guides and an armed escort scout
  • All day game drive picnics can also be arranged with packed lunch

Wildlife Camp will be your home for the first 3 nights of your South Luangwa safari.

Zikomo Safari Camp, South Luangwa National Park

Zikomo Safari is a comfortable eighteen (18) bed camp located in one of the best game viewing areas in the Nsefu Sector of the South Luangwa National Park. Built on the banks of the Luangwa River, Zikomo Safari Camp offers great views of the river and great views of the abundant birds and wildlife that live in and around the area. Far away from other camps, Zikomo Safari Camp has the best location from which to enjoy an unforgettable South Luangwa safari.

Zikomo Safari is owned and operated by an American family who work with experienced Zambian managers and staff. The Camp employs top professional guides, some of them with over fifteen (15) years experience in the Luangwa Valley. With immediate access to the Park, Zikomo Safari Camp guests can treat themselves to wonderful day and night game drives.
